Room and Board
The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
(amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
+ amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
+ amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

I got the chance to attend Preview day last year. I was highly impressed by the way I was treated by the professors and students. I really liked it.
Lindsey from Southside, AL
UNA is perfect for any student wanting to go to a university but still go to a close and tight-knit school. UNA isn't too big and isn't too small. Everyone is friendly and the classes are small enough to get to know your peers.

UNA is absolutely amazing and I love it here. The town surrounding it is great and filled with little places to visit like Trobridges. The campus is also great.
